I have enjoyed watching your online videos. I suppose my favorite is the "Creation and Miracles, Past and Present." The point about the earth being only around 5,000 years old is major. If our world is only 5,000 years old, it would make a person's life feel a lot more significant than if the earth is millions and millions of years old. The theory of evolution is a depressing topic.
Anyway, in your "Creation" video, Padre Pio is featured, a favorite saint of mine… Are there some saints in the church that could not really be saints? There have been some questions about the sainthood of Elizabeth Seton. Some have stated that there was a heavy lobby in Rome to make her a saint because she was an American, and one of the necessary miracles was dispensed with in order to make her a saint. Is this true? I was converted to Catholicism in the mid-80's by in older, more traditional Catholic priest, and he gave Elizabeth Seton as my saint. I've never really cared for that saint.
I've listened to the recorded versions of your 2 radio broadcasts... I think they have gone well and wish you the best in the future.
Dona, thank you for your comments. Elizabeth Ann Seton was "canonized" by Antipope Paul VI in 1975. He obviously had no authority to canonize, since he was an antipope. This does not mean that Elizabeth Ann Seton is not in Heaven or wouldn't be worthy of canonization by a true pope; it simply means that, as of yet, she has never been canonized and therefore we cannot say infallibly that she is to be numbered among the saints.
